WE received our 2012 disney vacation video and our kids now keep asking to go to Disneyland. We have never been there but have been to WDW numerous times and I love planning out those trips...that is how I found the Dis. When are the best times of year to visit DL. We would typically think about going in January, May, September or October. Any insiders tips we should consider when making that decision? Also where would you recommend staying? We are in the process of becoming DVC members if Disney approves the resale contract we are trying to buy. SHould we try to stay at the Grand California on points? How does dining work? It doesn't seem like there is a dining plan option like at WDW. Also how mamy days would you recommend? We typically vist wdw for a week at a time. Would that be too much time at DL? Thank you for any helpful advice you can provide and Happy New Year.
